Product Description

PowerPanel® Business 4 Virtual Machines | Software
Protects computers and valuable data by initiating connected computers' operating system to shut down during a power event.

Product Overview


PowerPanel® Business for Virtual machines provides the ability to activate a graceful shutdown of virtual environments to minimize and reduce data corruption and downtime during extended power events. The software gives IT professionals the tools they need to easily monitor and manage backup power for their virtual environments. Available for compatible CyberPower UPS models, this software supports up to 250 clients, allowing users remote access (from any network PC with a web browser) to instantly access vital UPS battery conditions, load levels, and runtime information. Functionality includes application/OS shutdown, event logging, hibernation mode, internal reports and analysis, remote management, and more. Power alert notifications can be sent via email, text, or instant message.

This software is compatible with VMware ESX/ESXi 6 and above.

VMware vSphere® Enterprise Edition™ Support

PowerPanel Business software’s Local and Remote modules have the ability to shut down a virtual environment by signaling virtual machines to shut down before the software notifies the VMware ESXi™ host to shut down.

PowerPanel Business is able to support vSphere monitoring, vMotion®, High Availability, Distributed Resource Scheduler, ™ and Distributed Power Management™. Enables PowerPanel Business Edition to perform additional functionality to manage and protect virtual infrastructure when power events occur. Used together with vCenter, PowerPanel Business provides ease of management to centralize control and visibility of virtualized environments and power conditions. Out-of-the-box, configurable automated graceful shutdown sequence allows IT professionals to protect their virtual environments from data loss or corruption.

The software supports the ability to shut down virtual machines, monitoring of clusters, monitoring and shutdown of VMware vSphere® vApps™, and the monitoring of shared storage.

PowerPanel Business can direct vMotion to migrate virtual machines within a cluster moving the virtual machine to an available ESXi host seamlessly keeping applications operational during power events to maintain business continuity.
